ARTbop (Marcus Hobson, Lee Switzer and Rosemary Balu) spent an hour or two this morning at Toi Art and Design Store on Elizabeth Street. Long conversations were had about art and creativity and some happy purchases were made. More art work was coming in this afternoon. Make an effort to “shop” here – supporting local art and creativity.
